Surgery
Dr Gallagher is a private surgeon who operates in private hospitals only. Queensland Knee Surgery Clinic accepts only insured patients with hospital cover due to the prohibitive hospital costs without private health insurance.

Dr Gallagher performs a limited number of arthroscopic and reconstructive sports surgery procedures under No Gap or Known Gap arrangements with some health funds. Patients are requested to liaise with our Front Office staff regarding these arrangements. Dr Gallagher does not perform joint replacement surgery under No Gap or Known Gap arrangements and patients should expect an out of pocket cost for the surgeon, the assistant, the anaesthetist and possibly the hospital.  An estimate of surgery fees can be provided by our Front Office staff prior to surgery.

Medicolegals
Dr Gallagher does not perform Medicolegal assessments nor does he see patients under Medicolegal arrangements.
